Hispanic cable net Mun2 will join Telemundo and MSNBC in broadcasting the Latino-targeting doc Underwater Dreams (pictured) as part of NBCUniversal’s Hispanic Enterprises and Content’s nationwide campaign to close the Latino student achievement gap.

All three nets will air the doc by Mary Mazzio, which chronicles the story of four teenage boys of Mexican descent who enter an underwater robotics competition against MIT engineers.

Telemundo and MSNBC will simultaneously air a special, one-hour TV version of Underwater Dreams in both English and Spanish on July 20, with Mun2 following suite on July 21 at 4 p.m. EST/PST.

In addition, AMC Theaters will host up to 100 free community screenings at cinemas across the U.S. throughout the summer and fall months, in order to make the doc accessible to as many Latino audiences as possible.
